This album features incredible playing (of course) but what is remarkable is the sound of the ensemble. There is a definite lack of low frequency-the bass and piano aren't really trying to fill it up, yet somehow the sound is not thin and doesn't seem to suffer. This is a great lesson for all of us who play in combos...
